B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Yesterday, I was on the hunt for a fun breakfast idea. Botch left Thursday for Nanjing and got home late Saturday night so I wanted to surprise him with something different. And now for something completely different (for us anyway): Banana French Toast from Mr. Breakfast! We're big fans of banana pancakes so I thought this might be a nice variation. It's a mixture of pureed bananas, eggs, milk and I added in some cinnamon instead of dusting it on after. I was a little leary at first, but it was so simple and had no sugar. I will admit that I took a picture of the prettiest corner of the batch, because I was having troubles getting them evenly browned. Luckily, the hod podge look didn't affect the taste because they were yum-meee! We stood in our cracker-box kitchen and ate them right off the skillet. No soggy French toast for us! Sliced strawberries on top might be nice, but that idea will have to wait until November which is when strawberry season starts here. Mr. Breakfast is my new best friend---check out the DIY stuff like print your picture on a cereal box and gift jar mix recipes.
